debate on foreign policy between president obama and mitt romney today at 12:10 eastern here on c-span. >> this is the downsizing of the charts. you are watching it live. one of 10,000 homes they are trying to get done in the next four years. these are houses that are never coming back. >> one-family every 20 minutes moving out. >> moving out of detroit. >> these houses are disappearing from the landscape. >> just recently, 164 firefighters were laid off as part of the downsizing, effort for mayor bing to get fire -- to get finances under control. detroit must have the highest cases of arson in the country. they were rehired. the money came from the department of homeland security. i cannot want to overstate. that is something you want to think about. the department of homeland security needed to step in to keep detroit as safe as it could be. it could be a lot safer. i have wondered making this film, the auto industry bailout. we have seen the bank bailouts. are we heading into an era of bailout the city. is there such thing of killing out the city? >> tonight at 8:00 p.m. on "q
that senator paul had missed distinction from most of the republicans in the senate on the foreign policy issues, but that he seems to think he has the momentum going forward and is kind of playing a longer game when it comes to how these things work. host: i want to ask you about a piece in the morning paper that you wrote, the president's focus on big bird, binders and baionets may backfire. >> i had some interesting conversations with people that conduct these polls. you answer your phone, who are you going to vote for? these are telling me that the tactics that president obama is using, talking about diners, bayonets and big birds, they're rubbing people the wrong way. in part because they want to focus on jobs in the economy, which is this big, darker issue that the country is facing right now. it's worrying people a lot. and so, the idea that he can talk about things like the binders comment, which is really just a play off a comment that mitt romney made during the presidential debate, where he talks about his desire to hire a lot of women. and it's not helping him. i think that's
changes will be made moving forward. we did a piece to set up the foreign policy debate. like many of your viewers, we were surprised when governor romney some -- presented that as the first question in that debate. we made a note of the day after that debate. host: do you think this issue is one that is in the top five for voters in colorado? guest: no. for voters who are opposed to the obama administration, it makes their top five, but the top five for most people, three out of those spots are the economy, the economy, the economy. after that it would be energy and social issues, women's access to health care being chief among them. host: curtis hubbard, thank you so much for your time this morning. guest: thanks for having me. >> we have the managing director of our and our partners joining us this morning. this is the financial times this morning showing that colorado is pretty even. some have shown governor romney ahead. the denver post notes that president obama has been to the state more than any president in 40 years. he carried it more than any other democrat in 2008. how are repu
and gentlemen, they have made it clear that they also have a different view on foreign-policy. when we entered iraq, they said bishop of kept 30,000 troops -- when we ended the war in iraq, they said we should have kept 30,000 troops there. they refused to commit to an end date. and they openly opposed a signing of an arms control treaty with russia that other republicans urged that we ratified. now the governor is running away from everything he said in the last year and a half. the congressmen is running away from everything he voted for. i am not making this up. this is real. ladies and gentlemen, they are now abandoning the central tenet of their party's agenda. the accounting on the american people to have an overwhelming case of amnesia on november 6. all of a sudden romney claims he does not hea $5 trillion tax cut that will raise taxes for the middle-class to the president has a new term for it, he calls a what? romnesia.' it is the most accurate term i have heard in a while. and it is contagious because of a sudden, congressman ryan, the guy picked because of his new ideas about how t
, on this issue generally in foreign policy, how is that playing out in pennsylvania? guest: there is no doubt that the president had a pretty substantial lead on foreign policy in the polls that have been done. that lead has certainly narrowed to four, five, six points in the polls i looked at just last week. the been gauzy issue has certainly played a pretty significant role in that decline. on been gauzy, it's hard to say exactly how that would play a politically. i do think the administration has a lot to answer for objectively for how they handled it and what the president and vice-president new or did not know when any time and how they responded to the request for security. we do not have time to get in the details of that. typically that would not be decisive. we will not go to the moral question that the caller raised, but in political terms, it's not likely to be decisive, but it's certainly not helpful to the president. it is still in the polls that i have done and others have done largely about the economy. host: this was just a few days ago from politicio. republicans are intrigue
? it is not unusual within the traditions of our country to have the challenger engage. we do that on foreign policy. they get briefings. governor romney has been included and offered to talk to the management infrastructure. if governor romney were to win, there would be briefings before he became president. it was not a political question. i think it was a fair question. i think what we saw was governor christie's desire to show everyone how strongly he is a political, which, as you said, makes him look political. >> having worked for a lot of politicians, i don't think we should always read into everyone's motives. of yisly, there is politics. at the end of the day, chris christie is is aware of it. his number one priority has to be to people of new jersey that he is working on this. having an event with mitt romney would seem very political. i think he had the right response. maybe he was a bit more confrontational than i would be. the substance of this is the right one. the fact that we have politicians reaching across the aisle is something we should separate and start looking at their motives
with that. >> also in foreign policy. you will hear a lot of revelations that came out about the tragic benghazi attack and we know that cia operatives for help were denied in the attack. you think the investigation has impact on the undecided voters at this point? >> yeah, i think it will to some extent. he doesn't look good in this, but the more affect is frees the action between sand yethis, the hurricane and libya, you know it really drowns everything else out . for a president is clearly losing right now, the worst thing to have is 10 days was being drowned out and that seems to me what is likely to happen. >> because of sandy dominating the headlines and. >> sandy and libya. >> i mean, what is obvious in libya. what is obvious in libya is hillary cut back on the security and they didn't reenforce. but the reason they didn't is because the president wanted a minimal security presence in the world and so they didn't see american troops and they weren't upset. and then when the attack happened, obama went out for two weeks and lied about it and he said it a popular demonstration gone
a very different view on foreign policy. when we entered the warren arrived, they said we should commit 30,000 troops -- entered the war in iraq, they said we should commit 30,000 troops. they refused to commit to an end date in afghanistan. his national security adviser -- urged be ratified. the governor is running away from everything he said in the last year-and-a-half. the congressman is running away from everything he voted for. i am not making this up. this is real. ladies and all men -- ladies and johnson, they are counting on -- gentlemen, they are counting on the american people -- ladies and gentlemen, they are counting on the american people to have an overwhelming case of bemis on november 6th. all of a sudden -- case of amnesia on november 6th. the president has a new term for it. he calls it romnesia. all of a sudden, he does not have a five trillion dollar tax cut. congressman ryan, the guy whose budget cut everything 19% across the board, the guy who pledged to voucherize medicare, all of a sudden, he does not plan to cut their programs. he plans to slow their growth. he
that's going to go back to the same policies that got us into this mess. foreign policy, if you watched the last debate. terrifying if you're a woman. terrifying if you're a gay person. terrifying if -- literally anybody but the top 1%, isn't it? >> it is remarkable to me. it is also remarkable to me that basically other than having a good first debate, romney has done what he's done and been pretty bad since this whole thing started. it is shocking. i still think obama's -- it reminds me of when i was a kid. every time there was a presidential election, i thought i would have to move to canada. my mother would say if nixon gets elected we're moving to canada. every time an election would approach, i would get worried about missing my friends because we were going to move to canada. i'm hoping i won't have to move to canada. >> stephanie: you're probably already packed. you're planning on packing for canada for years. >> i'm looking outside the window of my new york apartment looking at a normal fall day and wa
amnesia, or romnesia, however you want to speak about it, when you talk about foreign policy and they forget that it was president bush. that got us into the worst foreign policy debacle in the history of this country. we will be digging ourselves out of the hole in iraq for a long, long time. because of failed intelligence and a variety of other thins. these guys remained -- remind me of a sports announcer. you watch the beginning of the football team and the analyst says, this team is going to win for sure, this is going to be a blowout. then the game is over and they were wrong they don't mention that they were wrong and made bad predicts. that's what these guys remind me of. you guys cause halved of these problems, 3/4 of these problems and you turn around and try to blame obama. but the american people are smart they pay close attention when the time is right. that's why you see obama doing well in places like ohio. >> again, host: again, we're being joined by tim ryan, a democrat from youngstown, ohio, via skype. we go to a caller from ohio. good morning, john. caller:
in the aftermath. i would let mitt romney lay out the foreign policy for afghanistan. i got some proposal that's might end up with a better result i think we will get. we pull out. >> such as? >> these proposals are a little bit strategic and dangerous to talk about on public and national television. i will just say that, i expect there will be a civil war in afghanistan if we pulled out immediately, and there are some ways to bring that together that people can be represented in various governments and more effective fashion than they are now. president karzai has been handed a powerful constitution where he rules the whole country. a saint would have abused that power. karzai has abused that power. >> vilsack, time for a new constitution in afghanistan >> i think that we need to first of all, make sure everyone who has served there in this country, that we all recognize that they did everything that we asked them to do. in the end, they've been asked to help train police forces. much like our national guard. they've been asked to help train them so they can take care of their own country
they can't run on the foreign policy record because it many shot through with lies and it's in collapse. the only thing they have left, their default position is to run these offensive ads. megyn: kirsten, your thoughts. >> the on one that is an obama ad is a lena dunham ad. i like her a lot. i think she is a great comedian. megyn: i was surprised the obama campaign usedder in this way for this ad. >> it's a very targeted message targeted towards like rall educated women. the kind of women who watch their show. it's in the humor of that generation it's sort of ironic and i don't understand the outcry over it. this idea that suddenly she mentioned he sex, what are we going to .. it's not that controversial. the michael moore ad is offensive. but the obama campaign has nothing to do with that. they would never put out an ad like that. megyn: move on is partnering with them. >> i don't think move on should be associated with it either buff it isn't the obama campaign. megyn: kirsten made a point that ronald reagan made a joke about losing his virginity. he said i used to be a democrat. he
this situation. host: a couple issues there. foreign policy, talk about how it is playing in ohio. guest: first sheet mentioned the issue of jobs and the economy -- she mentioned the issue of jobs and the economy. mitt romney has made a strong case about laying out why we don't have a better economy. why he would lead the country in a direction toward creating more jobs. i think that has been the strength toward his campaign. when you get into the military, that has been an issue. it was a much bigger issue in 20008. getting into the benghazi issue talking about the attack in libya has not played much in the campaign. it has been more of an issue that the pundits have battled around but you will not hear that on the campaign trail from voters and elsewhere. host: tennessee on the independent line. go ahead. caller: hi. i've been watching this for the last couple days and i wonder -- he is really trying to help the middle class. i have a business in tennessee. i think he is a good president. mitt romney already has everything. he does not know what it feels to be black or white in the middle cla
cannot run from their record or positions. the last foreign policy debate, i was not sure whether governor romney was going to endorse president obama. we roman catholic say that boy had an epiphany. governor romney went from sank it was a mistake we did not leave 30,000 troops in iraq. he sounded like he was against the war from the beginning. i was amazed. he went from labeling russia last year as the single greatest geopolitical threats to the united states and even opposed the new gun control treaty that every republican said to push that, he said he would not have supported it. all of a sudden we can work with russia. you know that. did you hear that? i thought, turn that tv up. he is now putin's best friend. when as in the second debate what would you commit to, he said it depends. with these guys it depends on everything. it always depends who they're talking to or where they are. it depends on what the vote is. it always depends. i am from pennsylvania. the grandfather always said be aware of the convertists. one issue they cannot bring themselves to say they now agreed wi
: sure. >> he also made an attempt at the same type of undecided voters. he tried to use foreign policy as his issue. did not work as well. his is more of an attack on mitt romney. let's take a look. >> i'm barak obama and i approve this message. >> wreckless, amateurish. that's when news media and fellow republicans called mitt romney's gaffe filled july tour of england, israel and poland. when our u.s. diplomats were attacked, the "new york times" said romney's knee jerk response showed a lack of presidential character. republican experts said romney's remarks were the worst possible reaction to what happened. if this is how he handles the world now, just think what mitt romney might do as president. >> so negative. so negative. that's not what voters want to hear. the amazing thin is that barak obama attacks mitt romney on of all things, libya? the obama campaign has been the most negative campaign over the last three weeks of any campaign in modern history. compare and contrast that with 2008 when he was the most positive. it's one of the reasons why his favorability ratings have go
parents should necessarily be the pivot for how we discuss, you know, public policy or foreign policy. i thought that was true when cindy sheehan was being lionized by the mainstream media, and i feel basically the same way with mr. woods. i feel terrible for him, but we shouldn't let it manipulate everybody with guilt about it. jennifer griffin's report about how the people on the ground were denied support is a big story. we talked about it a lot on fox, "the washington post," "the new york times," abc, nbc, cbs haven't talked about it basically at all, and i think that's outrageous. megyn: jonah raises cindy she man because so many in the mainstream media wanted to talk about her story and the objections to the iraq war and she was such a presence on the campaign trail when president bush was running for re-election, and so that was the plight of a parent that got a lot of attention. the plight of mr. woods, not so much. >> well, i think that clearly he's gotten lots of attention here on fox, and, you know, just this morning there was a column in "the washington post" by david ignatiu
or steel aspects from it -- emulate their engagement policy or steal aspects from a? >> there is not a perfect model. look at some of the work that is happening in india, for example, to try to attract foreign investment and entrepreneurs. i'm not sure -- it is still very early in terms of the results of their. for the last three decades, the u.s. has had, historically, a very healthy immigration policy, but in the last decade or so we have kind of gone the other way. when you think about it, the number of immigrants that have come in and built amazing companies and created jobs in the hundreds of thousands, we cannot be looking at other markets because there is not a perfect model, but we need to look back of the 1970's in the u.s. as an historical model. we have a lot of immigration. a lot of people came in with science, technology, engineering, mathematics backgrounds. if you look at silicon valley, you see the results. >> i spent seven years of my life painfully on the commission of immigration reform which was chaired by barbara jordan and 1990's. i think the wa
. the president is doing a loss to help that. with respect to foreign policy, i think that the record has been clear. i think this is a desperate act in a desperate campaign in the closing days to try to say that the president lied to the american people. i think that is not true, it is offensive to the good men and women who are neither democrats or republicans but get up and work for the national security of this country. host: what are you going to be watching for in your state on election night? guest: in wisconsin, is a unique blend. about to turn that your base democratic voters and make sure you are getting the votes from the swing voters, from the milwaukee suburbs or the green bay, across markets. we want to see big turnouts in the madison area. 20 to hold our own markets like green bay. is a swing market. i love wisconsin. is a fabulous state to watch politics and. to be a top state politically. but it is a great formula to put together a democratic victory. host: joining us from milwaukee, mike tate, wisconsin democratic party chairman. thank you for your time. >> tomorrow, molly ba
that the government should use public policy to punish cohabitaters, homosexuals, and foreign cay tors, oh my. he pulled it into republican territory with him. early this year that republican legislature came up with a fertilized egg as person bill. a bill that would ban all abortion and hormonal contraception and invee tro fertilization. the day the bill was passed through a committee, this is what the lobby of the hearing room looked like. the area around was full of protesters. that was a standing-room only type of gig. there were protesters outside as well. they came out with the forced vaginal ultrasound bill, which governor mcdonnell threw his full support behind. hundreds of protesters turned up at the capital on the day the house was supposed to vote to take part in a silent protest. protesters lined the sidewalks as they would have to see them as they walked to work. it was a very powerful, very large protest. they are making their case on two levels. first, there were a lot of people. lots of women, also some men too. and they were all willing to show up and stand there that they were a
